This is a very good cheap way of travelling in public transport. To figure out which exit to use is a bit complicated. Better if you know Spanish.

Unlike other subways, you must know the direction you're going in order to take the correct stairs from the street. I didn't realize this the first time and had to get off at the next station, leave and enter again. I wanted to go to...More

A card for 2 journeys - including some transfers from one line to another - will set you back about 1 €. Cheap, but crowded and hot inside the stations. Carry a free map to make life easier.

San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the
footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area
of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the
true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
financial district is well-known for its vibrant
atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours.
After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes
